Morning, everyone!

Hello, I'm new. I am a sawyer and I have recently been milling black locust lumber for ribs on a schooner. I have also been doing research on sailing vessels, especially larger vessels, say 100 tons or more. Is there much discussion of these larger vessels on this forum? I am very interested in the tall ships and such, but I haven't been able to find a forum that discusses them a whole lot. I would think there would be a lot more interest. What forum topics should I visit on here?

Re: Morning, everyone!

Welcome sawyer.
There was quite a bit of discussion about the recent sinking of the ship Bounty during hurricane Sandy. If you search these forums for "Bounty" you will likely find several rather long threads on the subject.
That said, this is not an exclusively wooden boat forum, in fact, many here own the 'plastic' versions rather than woodies, although there are a few.
If you really want to talk to folks about wooden boat construction I'd say the place to go is the Wooden Boat Forum.

Re: Morning, everyone!

welcome aboard, hope you find everything you're looking for. There are a few wooden boat owners here I see some of them on general chat from time to time. Haven't met anybody with a tall rig yet. I deliver vessels up to 1600 ton and if I can ever be of any help don't hesitate to ask. CaptG

Re: Morning, everyone!

Welcome from another sawyer,

Wooden boats are "Real Boats". I am a fan of wooden boats, too. I used to teach at a wooden boat school here in Maine. I sold dozens of live Larch knees for schooner restorations from my wood lot in Perry, Maine. You are on a distinguished path already. Keep the course and welcome aboard.

Re: Morning, everyone!

Thanks, guys! Downeast, I was born in Maine, lived there until I was 16, and moved back and forth from here to there several times. I lived in Clinton, Kennebec County. Exit 138. I still have a good many extended family members there; aunts, uncles, cousins, and my one remaining grandmother.

Re: Morning, everyone!

Welcome ,Sawyer. Good to sea some are interested in the tall ship and timber construction in particular. My own little tallship (22 tonnes) is yellow cedar on yellow cedar ribs. Not a lot of big projects any more, even in the land of timber to die for,,BC. The SALTS have built two recently and are planning a third in the near future They are an outward bound style organization (sail and life training society) The Pacific Swift and Pacific Grace .are local fir; donated and mostly volunteer labour (mine included) I hear the next project is another schooner (90-100 ft ??) Wer'e talking trunneled sawn frames. The Alaska mill was invented here by Will Malof so many just find the right tree and have at 'er.

Re: Morning, everyone!

My customers made the trip up from Florida today and picked up the locust wood I had milled. They were very happy with the results, and they say they will be needing two more orders of about this size. So I am beaming! (that's a sailing term, right?)
